Welcome to the ALL NEW French Country Fridays, the series that will inspire you to “Frenchify” your Friday!
It’s been an interesting and NOT start to summer across the US and Canada. We are used to the heat here in South Florida but those of you in the west are likely not set up with the comforts of a/c. Climate change is so real and frightening and I’m not sure what exactly we can all do to play our part. My husband and I are looking into solar electricity for our home and I’ll let you know what we decide on. But for today, let’s dive into French Country Friday for some interesting reading…

• Our Guests – Featured This Week •
This young family followed their dream and moved to a charming Chateau on the Normandy coast, throwing all their life savings and hard work into restoring the 18th century building. In this video episode they explore how to use foraged finds from the Chateau grounds to create beautiful florals on a budget.
A delightful full PDF magazine from the elegant perfumery Maison Fragonard, a small, family-owned French house. The annual magazine embodies the very unique spirit of Fragonard, imagined and curated by their people, who all lent a helping hand as writers, models or passionate creators. (Give the link time to load. It’s worth it!)
If you find yourself in the South of France, be sure to stop by and check out this gorgeous hotel! Even if you just pop into the stunning bar for a drink, it’s worth the detour. With a new retrospective book out, you can explore the hotel’s long history. Or just peruse the website for some style and taste inspiration.
